John Ward – Pensions: George Osborne – Destroyer Of Personal Wealth….Supplier To Corporatist Fascism – 6 October 2014

Rich depraved bloke seeks to tax deprived Oldies to deathdepravedos

On April 6th 2015, everyone with a draw-down pension will be able to turn it into cash – and/or do a lot more things with it as a pension. Doesn’t that sound exciting?

Just as with Help to Buy, the minute Osborne announced this scam I was in grudging awe of the man’s skill when it comes to underwater three-dimensional Chess moves. He may have 100% of all the wrong ends, but he does have 250% of the right means to achieve said ends. Continue reading

Ukraine May Have Found A Gas Savior In Norway, Moscow Skeptical – 6 October 2014

RT logoNaftogaz, Ukraine’s biggest natural gas company, has signed a deal with Norway’s Statoil and started receiving shipments, arriving just in time to possibly save Kiev from an energy crisis before winter. Experts in Moscow doubt the legality.

“Statoil has signed an agreement with yet another new-to-Statoil gas customer in the European gas market. The agreement with Naftogaz is for deliveries of gas in Slovakia,” Statoil spokesman Morten Eek said, noting shipments began on Wednesday from Slovakia.

“From there, they are responsible for transportation,” Eek said, but didn’t specify the price Naftogaz is paying for the deliveries.

The spokesman said the deal is “short-term” and the volumes are “relatively-low”.

At the end of its first, ignominious year, Help to Buy results are available for analysis. The Sun headline is Kylie marries former jailbird in no that’s not right, the real write-bite is this: 2.5% of all mortgages have used the scheme, and the adopters are young and downmarket wannabes north of London who live predominantly in Labour constituencies. The very folks who don’t normally vote Conservative. Just fancy that. Continue reading

SWIFT: ‘No Authority’ To Suspend Russia, Israel From Intl Payments Over Sanctions – 6 October 2014

RT logoSWIFT will not bow to pressure to disconnect Russia and Israel from international transactions as it has “no authority” to make unilateral sanctions decisions, the Belgium-based group said Monday.

“SWIFT regrets the pressure, as well as the surrounding media speculation, both of which risk undermining the systemic character of the services that SWIFT provides its customers around the world. As a utility with a systemic global character, it has no authority to make sanctions decisions,” the group said in a statement released on Monday.

The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, or SWIFT, is currently one of Russia’s main connections to the international banking system, and if turned off, could hurt Russia’s economy, in the short-term.

“SWIFT services are designed to facilitate its customers’ compliance with sanctions and other regulations, however SWIFT will not make unilateral decisions to disconnect institutions from its network as a result of political pressure,” the communique said.

I advocate being present to your circumstances and being present to your own gifts, and using those gifts in the service of the land base.”“Imagine: we all start saying: ‘I will do WHATEVER IT TAKES to stop global warming, monsanto, military imperialism, etc.’ What happens if we do that?”This rousing Derrick Jensen clip reminds me of my vow, on returning from the North American Permaculture Convergence in Minnesota just over a month ago.

John Ward – (Not Entirely) Lord Of The Flies – 6 October 2014

A variety of internet pages confirm that ‘with the repeated use of the same insecticides, flies develop resistance through genetic mutations that make these products less effective’. To be clear about this, I inflicted a popular brand of French fly-spray on my invaders….and it had zero, zilch, no effect on the recipients. The odd bluebottle I targeted…yes, it began the familiar manic dipping and diving one associates with imminent flying insect death: but your house-fly laughed in the face of my attack.

Hitchcock sought a suitably terrifying follow-up to The Birds, but never found it. Were the old sex-beast alive today, one can’t help thinking that he might have gone for The Flies. You may think I jest, but these persistent little buggers are cavorting all over my kitchen surfaces, tables, plates and skin: and I feel powerless to stop  them.

Worse things happen at sea, as my mysteriously bonkers Auntie Myra used to say. But there are very, very few seagoing flies.
